The principle of using unemployed labor for woods work is one which has long been accepted abroad, but had not been widely applied in this country until the present unemployment relief program was inaugurated. Stand improvement is well suited for relief work, since it can be done throughout the year and requires a minimum of equipment, allowing most of the money to be spent for wages. This article summarizes the results of a study of stand improvement work accomplished by various relief agencies in New Hampshire, with the main emphasis on costs.
